A rollicking novel about two city slickers who inherit a rural house with disastrous consequences (they run over the town mascot—a wild boar—on their initial journey to the home) as they cling to their deteriorating marriage. Lily digs up her ancestor's missing maid and wards off the boar's crazy owner while Duncan works on a sexist ad campaign that mocks the Vietnam War.
